It’s time for NFL Week 13 picks, and it might be the best slate of games the league has put forth all year. What a time to be alive.
The Patriots need to win, but the Bills are the better team and the defense is getting healthier. Can New England get pressure on Josh Allen and cause a few turnovers? That’s the game.
Pick: Buffalo 23, New England 20
Deshaun Watson is coming back, and shockingly, it’s in Houston. The Texans are America’s Team this weekend, but Houston isn’t talented enough.
Pick: Cleveland 24, Houston 19
The Broncos appear to have completely given up, while the Ravens are going to be furious after losing to the Jaguars. Bad combination for Denver.
Pick: Baltimore 24, Denver 6
This is all about whether Justin Fields plays, and if he’s healthy. That said, the Packers are still the better team with Aaron Rodgers under center.
Pick: Green Bay 22, Chicago 20
Only a true fan … or a monster … is watching this game. That said, the offenses could make this a fun watch.
Pick: Detroit 31, Jacksonville 27
Quietly one of the best games of the week. The Vikings are trying to catch the Eagles for the NFC’s top seed, while the Jets are reborn offensively under Mike White.
Pick: Minnesota 21, New York 19
This is going to be close, ugly and unfortunate. Will Marcus Mariota do enough against the Steelers’ defense? Not exactly.
Pick: Pittsburgh 23, Atlanta 21
Great game. The Eagles might not be able to stop Tennessee’s rushing attack, and the Titans are built to take away Philadelphia’s run game. That said, Jalen Hurts to A.J. Brown is the difference.
Pick: Philadelphia 24, Tennessee 17
Critical NFC East game. The Giants and Commanders are fighting for wild card spots and this is a must-win for Big Blue. However, not sure New York has enough in the tank.
Pick: Washington 22, New York 18
